    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the implementation of the
    Perl programming language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2018-18311
    
        Jayakrishna Menon and Christophe Hauser discovered an integer
        overflow vulnerability in Perl_my_setenv leading to a heap-based
        buffer overflow with attacker-controlled input.
    
    CVE-2018-18312
    
        Eiichi Tsukata discovered that a crafted regular expression could
        cause a heap-based buffer overflow write during compilation,
        potentially allowing arbitrary code execution.
    
    CVE-2018-18313
    
        Eiichi Tsukata discovered that a crafted regular expression could
        cause a heap-based buffer overflow read during compilation which
        leads to information leak.
    
    CVE-2018-18314
    
        Jakub Wilk discovered that a specially crafted regular expression
        could lead to a heap-based buffer overflow.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.24.1-3+deb9u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
